SciComm Videos

In summer 2019 the REU interns were challenged with making short science communication videos to explain the significance of their research.  Several formats were suggested and the interns were given flexibility to choose a format that most suited their style.  Several chose the “video scribe” format, where a voiceover is accompanied by active drawing.  The featured video below was selected by the interns as an exemplary illustration of this format.
